Altana Federal Credit Union Billings Heights Branch
This credit union branch is a two-story 9,296 sq. ft. facility. The main lobby includes a concierge desk, waiting areas, teller pods, tech tables, a coffee bar, and an open stair cut through the center atrium, highlighted by a glass railing and tongue and groove wood plane wraps across the ceiling. Located on the east end of the main floor are offices and a conference room. The drive-up teller area is entirely separate from the lobby to the south, and a large garage anchors the west side of the building.
The second floor features a large conference room, offices, employee breakroom, and back-of-house spaces, including a rooftop mechanical yard. The building materials continue to progress Altana’s branding by using stone, light-colored EIFS, and zinc metal panels on the exterior. The interior uses cherry wood trim with a dark stain contrasted with the white oak tongue and groove ceiling.
The external site is heavily landscaped, drawing attention to the building from the busy street. The entry plaza uses colored concrete, raised planters, and benches to create an inviting entry experience.
